A web accelerator is a server-side app which accelerates a site. Such a piece of software can work in different ways depending on the site content, but in the typical case all such programs cache content and deliver it instead of the hosting server. That is valid for both static and dynamic Internet sites because the cached content could be simple text or database responses and the advantage of using a web accelerator isn't just the faster loading Internet site, but also the lessened overall load on the hosting server. This way, you may employ a lower-end hosting package that'll also cost less while your site visitors will be able to still enjoy fast browsing speeds. Few service providers provide web accelerators with their hosting deals and they usually offer only 1, while we offer 3 different ones that will allow you to improve the performance of any sort of site noticeably.

Web Accelerators in Hosting

If you host your sites within a hosting account from our firm, you'll have three popular web accelerators to pick from if you would like to enhance the sites' efficiency. Memcached is used for database-driven Internet sites and it caches the calls and requests between a website and its database, so it can easily decrease the load of such Internet sites drastically. Varnish caches whole web pages the first time a site visitor opens them and delivers them from there on if the same website visitor opens them again. It does that faster than the web server, so it can easily increase the loading speed of any Internet site nearly 300%. Node.js is an object-oriented platform for real-time applications which operates on the web server and not in the visitor's Internet browser. It's used for accommodation booking, chats and other applications where lots of data has to be processed in real time. The availability of those accelerators depends on the hosting solution that you select - they might come by default or as an upgrade. In both cases, you shall be able to include more instances or more memory for each of them.
